Parents of 4

Bella couldn't wait to hold the babies
I can't believe I'm a mom of 4 girls
Breanna

We've waited so long for them and Tuesday night we finally got our sweet baby girls.
Here's a quick re-cap of what happened.
Laura took me to the doctor around 1:00pm and I was dilated to a 5 plus my contractions were 2 minutes apart. They did a quick ultra sound and noticed that one baby was breach so we knew it would be a c-section. I had never had one and Seth said it was cool to watch, but wasn't a big fan of the whole thing. Sydney
Sydney was the first to come out and she weighed 5 lbs 2 oz. and was 19 in long. Breanna was next and she weighed 5 lbs 15 oz. and was 20 in long. The best part was they got to come with us back to my room. No NICU! That was great news.
Every time I look at them I can't believe they were in my stomach. It's crazy! They are just beautiful and I can't wait to get them home.
I'm here for 4 days and then I can come home and face reality.
Thanks again to everyone who has helped. We love and appreciate you all.

CONGRATS! They are so beautiful and we are so excited for you. Four girls is a handful I hear, but oh so rewarding! Please let us know if you need anything!

Is it just me, or is Sydney Claires twin sister? Wow! Breanna's lookin like daddy to me - let's hope that doesn't stick. LOL (I kid, because I love)

They are both absolutely gorgeous. You guys are so lucky.

Mike,
That's so funny you said that because everyone thinks she looks like Claire who looks like Seth. You'll have to see them in person. Then you can really tell.

Amy, they are both BEAUTIFUL!!! I can't wait to see them in person!!!!!!

I agree-- Sydney is a mini Claire for SURE!! I think they look a lot alike! They're going to have so much fun growing up with a built-in playmate!

I am still in awe that they didn't have to go to the NICU!! HOORAY FOR YOU!!! What an AMAZING blessing that is!! All your hard-work on bed rest definitely paid off!!!

Congrats again, Adrian ;)

Jenn said...

Okay- I was going to say the same thing- Sydney is Claire's twin sister!! They are darling!! I can't believe they were in you, and we are so happy for you!! You are a mom of four girls!! We will have to form a support group. I love that your names are not so matchy- it gives them an identity. Love it!!!

Bobbi said...

Amy...CONGRATS! Wow that went by FAST for me! We will have to make a trip up there to see you.

It sounds like you have lots of help...so nice to have a great neighborhood! But if that helps starts to dwindle please call us!

Lots of Loves!

Kira said...

Congrats from Nate and I!! I'm going add my two cents in and say Sydney does look just like Clair. They are both beautiful. I can't believe they were in your tummy! I'm just a tad bit wishing mine was closer to comin' out. it's weird that our due dates were so close. i still feel like I have forever to go, although you had it much worse! yay for healthy girls!!!! congrats again!! p.s. Love that first pic of chuck!!

Karen said...

congratulations to you both. It's funny, but when I scrolled down to see the picture of seth in his hospital gown, and then scrolled back up to look at the girls pictures, I can definitely see a resemblance! Amy, you look so fresh and beautiful for just having babies.

amyandseth06 said...

Oh man! I hate to admit this everyone. But I screwed up. I posted the wrong names on the babies. I've changed it. So everyone who thought Sydney looks like Seth really means Breanna. I'm in serious trouble, if I'm already getting them mixed up.

Venna said...
